The Salve amulet (e) is an enchanted Salve amulet. It raises the wearer's attack and strength by 20% while fighting undead monsters such as Zombies, Revenants, Ankou, Shade (monster) and Aberrant spectres. It is useful for training combat in the fourth level of the Stronghold of Security because of the many undead there. It has been confirmed that it does not give any effect against the seven Barrows brothers.
The enchanted amulet can be made during and after The Lair of Tarn Razorlor miniquest. After defeating Tarn Razorlor, Tarn's diary can be found on a table in the next room. Using the diary with a salve amulet creates the enchanted amulet. It is possible to enchant more than one, if you have multiple salve amulets. Once the miniquest is finished, the diary can also be found in a bookcase of a Player-owned house.

When to use the Salve amulet (e)Edit
The Salve Amulet (e) is considered by many players as one of the very best combat amulets in the game against the undead. Notice that while the Amulet of fury gives more critical hit chance to all combat styles, it cannot easily be compared to the Salve amulet (e), since the amulet gives 20% bonus to strength and accuracy. For players going for level 99 Attack, Strength and Defence by killing the Armoured zombies, this amulet is very useful.
For players on undead Slayer assignments, the boosts of the Salve amulet (e) do not stack with the effects of a Black mask or Slayer helmet. Only the larger boost will be effective. The larger boost being the Salve Amulet (e), so slayers may still find it useful on undead tasks. However, it is recommended to use the Amulet of fury or even the Amulet of glory. Both the black mask and slayer helmets increases strength and attack by 16.67% whereas the Salve amulet (e) increases by 20%. The difference of 3.33% bonus to strength and attack is offset by the increase in critical hit chance. Wearing either the Amulet of glory or the Amulet of fury increases the overall critical hit chance by 1.8% or 2.1% respectively.
Note that the Salve amulet and its enchanted counterpart only boost Attack and Strength, so its bonuses do not work with Ranged and Magic combat. The boost of a salve amulet DOES stack with the effects of Void Knight equipment.
